What is a Pharmacy Technician?

Pharmacy technicians work in pharmacies under the direct supervision of a pharmacist. Under supervision they help prepare prescriptions, sometimes measuring, mixing, packaging, labeling and delivering medications to patients. They order supplies and help to keep pharmacy equipment clean. Pharmacy technicians also help to maintain confidential drug and patient records. Graduates of this program will assist licensed pharmacists as they provide medications and other drug devices to patients.
